For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetime—maybe even love—in this romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling authors of Roomies.
Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion . . . she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas.
Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo.
Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is . . . Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be.
With Christina Lauren’s “uniquely hilarious and touching voice” (Entertainment Weekly), The Unhoneymooners is a romance for anyone who has ever felt unlucky in love.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Nobody does beach-ready romantic comedy like Christina Lauren, and this book is no exception. When Olive’s twin sister and her new husband get food poisoning from the seafood buffet at their wedding reception, Olive gets to go on their luxurious, nonrefundable Hawaiian honeymoon in their place. Unfortunately, so does Ethan, her longtime nemesis and brand-new brother-in-law. Together they suddenly have to maintain the fiction that they’re happy newlyweds. Filled with awkward coincidences and tart will-they-won’t-they banter, The Unhoneymooners is a hilarious, effervescent read about finding love in the unlikeliest places.

This was a great, light, and fun read. The storytelling was fantastic and it was great taking the journey with all the characters.
Majority of this book was so strong plot wise and extremely hilarious. I feel like I learned so much and was disappointed when I realized I was nearing the end of the main couple’s story. I wish the ending was as strong as the beginning of the story, but I’d still recommend this book to anyone looking for a beautiful and funny love story.
Great book! Easy read. Loved the ending!
